Struggling Arsenal could make a loan in January for Real Madrid striker Vinicius Junior.

The Gunners have been poor in front of goal so far this season.

They have scored 12 goals in their first 14 league games and sit 15th in the Premier League table.

Club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang barely contributed, scoring three league goals in 13 appearances.

This has led club leaders to research new attacking options.

According to Star of the day, Arsenal hope to sign Brazil international Vinicius Junior in the January transfer window.

The 20-year-old is available on the loan list as Madrid officials are hopeful his exciting development will continue.

Vinicius can play on any wing, making him a versatile team player.

He has scored six goals in 18 appearances this campaign. Vinicius was also crowned once by his country.

His time at Real Madrid came under intense scrutiny in October as striker Karim Benzema reportedly told his teammates “do not pass the ball” to Vinicius.

A loan move would mean Arsenal could verify the player’s talent without having to pay substantial fees. He could compete with Willian and Nicolas Pepe for a place in the starting XI.

Given their current position in the league, Arsenal fans might be worried that their club is putting too much pressure on young players.

Boss Mikel Arteta needs to find a way to get back into shape, and fast. Their next matches don’t look too difficult, even though they start with a tough game against Chelsea on Boxing Day.

Signing Vinicius on loan next month could give Arteta one more option to find much-needed goals.
